Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, these are very subjective terms, and what one surfer considers intermediate another surfer may consider advanced. As we wanted to provide our customers with the best possible experience, we decided it was worthwhile providing you with a baseline to work from so both you, our valued customer and we, Sharp Eye Surfboards, are all on the same page.
For the sake of setting this baseline, we have classified 3 main levels of ability Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced...
Our interpretations are:
Beginner - you are in the early stages of surfing. You can stand up, can do a bottom turn, and are starting to link some turns together.
Intermediate - This is the broadest category that most of the surfing population find themselves in. You are comfortable in most waves, and know where your limit is, although will keep pushing that limit to improve. Cutbacks, reo’s, floaters, foam climbs, and barrels are all a part of your surfing.
Advanced - you have built upon solid intermediate foundations and are blasting explosive high-performance maneuvers with speed, power and flow.
Wave size is subjective - what do you classify as Small, Medium and Large size waves?
Small Waves (1 - 3 foot).
Wave face up to waist height on an average adult male
Medium Waves (2 - 5 foot).
Wave face is from waist high to a bit over head high on the average adult male.
Large Waves (Over 5 ft).
Double overhead and up.
This depends on how often you use your board, how well you look after it, what kind of waves you surf etc...
